Watching her friend dragged away in handcuffs, Josie couldn’t believe for one second that Gretchen had killed that poor boy. Confession or not, someone else was involved. She would find out who…
When the body of a young student is found on the driveway of a local Denton home, a photograph pinned to his collar, Detective Josie Quinn is first on the scene. The house belongs to Gretchen Palmer, a dedicated member of Josie’s team, missing for the last twenty-four hours.
Working around the clock, Josie is stopped in her tracks when Gretchen hands herself in to the police. She knows that there’s no way Gretchen could ever be a killer, so why would she confess to a murder she didn’t commit?
Digging deep into Gretchen’s secretive life, Josie uncovers a link between the boy, the photograph and a devastating case in Gretchen’s past. But just when Josie thinks she has it all figured out, the bodies of a young couple surface on the other side of town. Can Josie get to the truth in time to save her friend from a life in prison or certain death?
Absolutely gripping, this unputdownable crime thriller from a USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author will leave you gasping for breath. A perfect read for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.
Thank you to Bookouture for my copy of this book via Netgalley and for letting me take part in this tour. I have enjoyed following Josie Quinn since her first story in Vanishing Girls. I love seeing Josie grow throughout the series. While these are a series they can be read as a stand-alone
This story focused more on Gretchen one of the other officers in Josie’s team. We have heard little about Gretchen in the previous books so I was excited to really get to know her. Man, what a life Gretchen has had. I won’t go into it as it would ruin the story but she has been through the wringer that is for sure. By the end, I wanted to give her the biggest hug.
The story flicks between the present day and the early-mid nineties. At first, the stories seem unconnected but eventually, you work out their relevance. I enjoyed flicking back and forth trying to work out what was going on. Lisa had me on the edge of my seat for so much of this book I really couldn’t work out what was going to happen.
It was also really great to see more of Josie’s personal life. She has changed so much since the first book and it was a pleasure to see her interacting with Trinity so much. I can’t wait for the next instalment of Josie Quinn.
